2013 SRT Viper GTS-R: First Crash
text size: A- A+
The accident took place during the weekend practice at Baltimore, with the No.91 car being driven by Dominik Farnbacher.
“We went out on sticker tires and I had two laps to warm up the tires,” Farnbacher said. “I was basically on a flyer. I was overtaking a GTC car on the right side going into the right turn. I took a little bit of a different line than before because I was overtaking the GTC car. I think on the inside there was one bump which upset the rear.”
“I lost the rear and I counter steered. Then I lost it to the other side and the car went basically toward the wall. I could not save it anymore. Just sorry for my team,” the driver concluded.
Let's just hope that the traction control on the street car, a first in the model's history, keeps drivers from doing the same.
